Marcel is SO over the cold. So he hopped a plane to California to have some wild Cali adventures.
He toured the offices of SF Chronicle, wandered about the Mission, Japan Town and downtown, ambled through Mountain View Cemetery, drove up Highway 1 on a rainy day, ate sushi with Crocker and a burrito at Chrissy Fields, shopped at Ikea and Thrift Town, drank at the Fairmont, the Tonga Room, the Albatross and the Mallard and crossed the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges on multiple occasions.
Marcel does not like people much but he did not mind these folks/animals/small children: Jackson, Sarah, Jeff, Travis, Rufus, Jen, Henry, Matt, Sue, Renee, Molly, Ivo, Lauren, Anabelle and Sophie. In fact, he likes San Francisco so much that he decided to stay on a bit, even after I left.
See it all in the video of Marcel's California travels:
Enjoy SF Marcel, you lucky bastard.
PS I didn't bring my video camera to CA so I could take a "real" vacation. Turns out that 700 frog photos later, I cannot stop my obsessive compulsive streak from discovering an outlet. Oh well, at least it is not heroin.
